New platesetter from Mitsubishi Imaging brings affordable CTP to the portrait color print market
Press release from the issuing company
September 14, 2005 -- Small commercial printers and quick print franchises with portrait or duplicator presses can realize the benefits of true internal drum platesetting, along with unsurpassed flexibility in plate size and resolution using the new DPX Lite platesetting system introduced by Mitsubishi Imaging (MPM), Inc., at PRINT 05 & CONVERTINGSM 05.
The DPX Lite is designed to make plates for duplicator and 2-up portrait presses, in shops doing both two-color and four-color process printing. Quality color output is assured by the DPX Lite’s image-to-punch feature, which promotes excellent on-press registration.
In contrast to other platesetters in its size and price range, the DPX Lite offers:
•A wider range of plate sizes, accommodating plate sizes from 10” x 10” up to 13.3” x 21.6”
•Variable spot size and resolution capabilities up to 3600dpi
•True internal drum, precision machined to achieve the tightest tolerances
•Precise registration provided by imaging directly to the built-in punch
The DPX Lite automatically produces pre-punched, high resolution, press-ready plates, making high quality process color printing more achievable for more print shops than ever before.
“The quality and accuracy of CTP technology has helped many printers grow their businesses,” said Colleen Molkenbur, Marketing Manager CTP systems, “the DPX Lite makes this technology affordable and puts it within the reach of every printer.”
The DPX Lite is manufactured by Esko-Graphics and distributed in North America by Mitsubishi Imaging (MPM), Inc.
